This CD is designed for where lively, well phrased jigs, reels and waltzes in dance length cuts are needed. Here is energetic New England dance music to be played in classes or dances where recordings are used. Andy Davis' accordion playing is outstanding and Keith Murphy also lets you know that he is a great piano player. Produced by New England Dancing Masters, this is a CD for dancing and listening.

This is Becky Tracy's first CD on her own and it's a doozie! That she is a fabulous fiddler is well known, but besides that, she has a great sense of tradition. She has chosen interesting tunes and plays them here with great sensitivity. Becky has also assembled a coterie of first class musicians to play with her. Evergreen is a superb listening CD.

From the very first notes of Sometimes the Moon is High you know you are listening to great musicians and can just sit back and enjoy. Travel to Ireland, Nova Scotia, Norway, Newfoundland, Ontario, Maine, Quebec, Sweden and back to Ireland while you listen to truly beautiful music. You'll hear Keith Murphy's rich , sonorous, voice on six songs on this CD along with eight lively cuts of contra dance music. This CD doesn't languish in our CD collection. We return to it time and time again.

On the first tune of the first cut of this CD, "The Five Roads", you hear how the accordion, fiddle and guitar interweave. Immediately you realize you are listening to something very special. The fine tunes and fine musicians throughout this CD makes for great music. Sometimes gentle, sometimes exciting, sometimes innovative, sometimes solidly traditional but always very enjoyable. I admit I am picky about vocals, especially vocals of the "folk"persuasion. Keith Murphy's voice and delivery are first rate.
